Next Steps

  • The PUD submitted a Conditional Use Permit application with Chelan County in late May. The application will start the County’s process of approval for a substation to be built on the property.
  • Construction on the North Shore Substation is anticipated to begin in summer 2022. We will update this page with more information about schedule and impacts prior to the start of construction.

Project Background

Chelan County PUD has been working closely with the community since 2015 to construct a new substation on the north shore of Lake Chelan, between Chelan and Manson. The two existing substations serving that area, Union Valley and Wapato, are nearing capacity. In November 2017, the PUD, along with community input, selected a site off Henderson Road for the new substation.
